Yesterday brought both good news and bad news for Ken Blankenship, the good being that Kirby Smart finally decided it’s okay to offer a scholarship to a full-term place kicker.
The bad news is that said kicker isn’t Ken’s son.
Georgia picked up a big-time special teams prospect after the G-Day spring game concluded.
Norcross place-kicker Jake Camarda offered his pledge to the Bulldogs after the intrasquad scrimmage concluded. He announced his intention to accept a scholarship offer from Georgia on his personal Twitter account.
Camarda is regarded as the No. 1 place-kicker in the nation, according to the 247Sports.com composite. With inside linebacker Adam Anderson decommitting earlier Saturday, Camarda is now the second prospect in Georgia’s recruiting class of 2018.
Given that there’s also a graduate transfer kicker coming in with a one-year scholly, I don’t think it’s much of a leap to think there’s a no vacancy sign posted at the entrance of the Scholarship Inn now.
Congrats to you, Ken. You’re the best example of parental involvement since Mitch Mustain’s mom worked her magic.
